- For Sale ByOwner
The design of the Lauf forks is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. You can ride without worries through sand, salt, desserts and ice - the performance will stay the same.
The monocoque carbon fiber structure delivers incredible strength, and the test-fork we have in our lab has already been “shocked” over 170 thousand times, without showing any signs of wear and tear. That equals more mountain-biking than you’ll manage to cram into at least 5 years of action!
Progressive Spring Rate
The Lauf Carbonara has 60mm of travel with progressive spring rate. This means that the further the fork compresses the springs become stiffer. This helps keeping the fork from bottoming without sacrificing small bump compliance.
The springs on the Lauf forks are made of military spec S2 glassfiber that is extremely tough on hits and flexible in the direction of the travel. The springs have been “shocked” in our test lab over 400.000 times reaching 40mm amplitude every time.Plus Tire Compatibility
The TR Boost can take full on 27.5+ tires as well as 29+ tires up to 2.8” wide. Some 29x3” tires will also fit but as tires are different from brand to brand you need to measure the tire beforehand
29” / 27.5+
The TR Boost takes both 29” wheels and 27.5+ wheels as they share the same diameter, roughly.
- Max Tire Width
29x2.8” / 27.5x3.0”
Put a 27.5+ 3” tire under for more grip and playfulness or go for slightly larger 29” tires (in diameter) for a more racy setup. It’s always good practice to double check the fit beforehand.
60mm / 2.35"
This is the sweet spot for our forks. Since the travel is fairly short and progressive, we don’t need damping. That makes the fork a lot simpler and maintenance free.
1.000g / 2.2 lbs
The Trail Racer fork is very light when compared to other XC suspension forks. It makes the whole front end of the bike more agile on technical climbs. Be prepared to lift your front wheel over rocks instead of navigating past.
- Unsprung weight
The low unsprung weight is one of the design elements that makes this fork extremely good at tracking small bumps and chatter which gives you great traction and isolates you from vibration.
- Spring Rate
Regular (over 65kg riders) / Light (under 70kg riders)
This should be used as a reference. If you’re an aggressive rider it’s likely that you’d prefer the “Regular” stiffness, even though you weigh less than 70kg. You won’t lose any of the small bump compliance.
- Rider weight limit
110kg / 243lbs
This should be your weight in race gear.
15mm Lauf Thru Axle (M15x1.5)
We supply all forks with our own axles. We made a lightweight low profile axle which requires a 6mm allen key. If you prefer a lever, you can replace it with e.g. the RockShox Maxle.
